Council is investigating complaints of people in the Morayfield area falsely purporting to be a Pool Compliance Officer employed by Council to conduct spot checks on swimming pool fencing.
Council asks locals to be alert and has informed the police of the matter.
When Council officers conduct swimming pool compliance checks, they will present photo identification and follow up with written correspondence from Council of what actions need to be undertaken.
The impersonator is giving verbal instructions and demanding that the works are completed within the next three days.
Please feel free to contact Council to verify an officer’s authority should you believe the circumstances to be suspicious.
